5:52 pm
and a couple of snow showers up in the poconos but overall a pretty quiet but cold start to this very short work week for most of us. as we look at the action cam out earlier, looking up seeing a few of those cumulus clouds and there you can see that wind. it was at work today really dropping those wind chills through much of the afternoon. as we look at the numbers in philadelphia, our high today was 10 degrees below the average of 53 degrees. the low this morning only 3 degrees below the normal of 37. and the record set back in 1880 of 10 degrees was one of the coldest november temperatures we've seen in philadelphia's history. so, it doesn't get much lower than that this time of year. 30 degrees in trenton, 22 right now the poconos is how it feels with that wind chill. 29 in reading. feels lick 2 like 27 in lancast. the winds you felt through much of the day today is thankfully going to relax here overnight tonight and especially early in the
